St John's popular Cinnamon Bay beach recently made the exclusive New York Times Travel list of one of '6 Caribbean beaches to Visit Before You Die'. The wide silky white sandy beach is wide and long enough to walk, play games, or just place your chair under one of the sea grape plants that line the beach providing wonderful shade. The swimming is wonderful and its gentle entry and sandy bottom is the perfect place to introduce the little ones to swimming or snorkeling. And, the snorkeling is great, especially around the cay directly in front of the beach. If you would rather just hang out on your beach chair, there is a treat for you with wonderful vistas of the British Virgin Islands in the distance. If you are into hiking or checking out some of the old ruins on St John check out the very neat Cinnamon Bay ruins right across the road.
We know why and to really understand just how beautiful Cinnamon Bay beach is you need to visit it as well.
